Keep the body you have.....change steering.......olds or 9" rear. As far as the frame goes I just can't remember what you had going on there but I don't think there was a problem with it......but if you want to toss some $'s at it then get a set of 32 rails and sweep the front and kick up the rear and run a 40 spring.
soaken wet shoes and winkled fingers...
hours and hours
inch at a time...

Ha, if you didnt know this picture was old you'd guess the blond was talking on her cell phone...that A looks like its channeled about as much as my 29. I dont think Pete would even fit in it as I cant fit in mine. If I remember mine was channeled 11 inches...I would not advise that route. I think a duece frame is definately the way to go...

Whitewalls or Blackwalls?

Gonna need 15's because thats what wheel is on the '55 olds rear axle. Blackwall is $50 cheaper.
